Hey all,
My 91 has blown a hole in the middle muffler..so, any opinions on  
Does anyone know how much a aftermarket system actually costs? Where to  buy?
Are there any other systems other than an Scorpion?
I have a local shop that will bend up a custom one out of aluminized pipe  
with mandrel bends for around 250.....but not sure of their muffler mix...though 
 they did a system on my 5000 turbo that sounded only a little raspier, but 
DID  help with throttle response (lower back pressure I presume).
Has anyone had experience doing this, and what mufflers did you use? 
Dual resonators, and a dual inlet/ single outlet/ dual outlet? Inquiring  
minds want to know.
Though I guess, even with a garage and a small heater this will be a cold  
job ( I really hate exhausts)....
BTW, replaced my front wheel bearing at a total cost of 75.58 last week,  vs. 
550 quote from the local stealership (IRA, north of Boston). 55.58 for the  
bearing, and 30.00 for the machine shop to press in and out the old and in with 
 the new.
Didn't know that there are NO c-clips like the rear to locate the bearing,  
just the press fit....
Happy Festivus to ALL!
